Sorry youngblood, but comparing Bill Hicks and Louis CK to Lenny Bruce and Redd Foxx is like comparing Phish to the Grateful Dead.

Now if you wanna compare, how about Bill Hicks and Dennis Leary, the innovator and the imitator.

comedy is THE most subjective form of entertainment. i don't think you can really compare any comedians unless you're comparing the success they had, their styles, or something along those lines.

to compare how funny different comedians are is pointless imo. what makes something funny? it makes you laugh. so that's the only argument one can really make for how funny a comedian is. if it makes you laugh, it's funny to you and that's all that matters.

here was my 2nd favorite comedian of recent years until his tragic passing recently. i highly recommend this guy:

here's a highly offensive and hilarious segment:

is comedy really any more subjective than music, or any other form of entertainment

one man's trash is another man's treasure and vice versa

hmm, methinks i have to disagree; for example, i can listen to a band or piece of music and absolutely find it unappealing, but even if i loathe it, i can still (if applicable) recognize the quality of the musicianship and give a nod of respect if the talent is there; the same i cannot say for comedy; if i don't find it funny/amusing/comedic, nothing is left for me to quantify; gallagher is a case in point, i have never even slightly found him funny, and most (98% at least) so-called hollywood 'comedies', atrocious and abysmal; my two pence

imo, it's much easier to make an argument for a piece of music than a piece of comedy. at least with the music you can evaluate things such as the vocal abilities, technical abilities of musicians, ability to play coherently together, songwriting ability, etc. i think there's a lot more to judge with music than comedy. but then again, what i'm saying now is all subjective as well!
